The Jewelry Trends of 2021 That You’ll Want to Add to Your Wardrobe
Each season, I study the runways to find the latest and greatest trends for you to try! For ALL of the fashion trends for spring/summer 2021 be sure to check out this post. I wanted to take it a step further now and share the jewelry trends of 2021! Switching out your accessories is a super easy (and fun) way to look more stylish and try out trends! It is also typically more budget-friendly. Let’s dive in…
Trend #1 | Layered Necklaces
Layering necklaces has been on trend for a while and it’s easily my favorite. I layer my necklaces all the time. Above, I’m wearing a chic B initial necklace by Oscar de le Renta and a shorter chunky gold geometric necklace by Tohum. Both of these necklaces are gorgeous on their own. But when you layer them, it elevates whatever outfit you’re wearing. If you’re worried about how to layer your necklaces, Express has beautiful pre-layered options! The necklaces I’m wearing are a little pricey, but you can find less expensive options here and here.

Trend #2 | Chains & Links
Chunky chains and links aka "paperclip-style" are another trend that has been around since at least fall of last year. We’re seeing chains and links on bags, shoes, and in jewelry. And the chunkier, the better. For a more wearable way to wear them, look for a subtle chain necklace or linked earrings. I’ve included a few favorites below.
Pretty much any style of pearl is “in” right now. These aren’t your grandmother’s pearls though. Think layered pearls, mismatched pearls, misshapen pearls on gold chains, etc. Basically, anything with pearls is fair game. But I think you can do it in a really chic and sophisticated way with these pieces…
Huge, oversized drop earrings were all over the runways in London and Paris. It seems like more is more when it comes to this trend. I prefer my jewelry be a little more subtle. But if statement earrings are your jam, this trend is for you!
Textured metals, particularly hammered metal is really popular right now. Hammered gold, silver, and copper were all over the runways on earrings, cuffs, and necklaces. The Valentino bracelet below is just one chic example of this hammered metal trend.
After a decade in TV news, a desire to help women "look pretty" sparked a career pivot. I started my own wardrobe consulting business, styling "real" women for many years. In 2014, I changed direction again, using my TV background and styling expertise to launch this website and my YouTube channel. We are now a community of well over 1 million dynamic, vibrant, amazing women over 40... who know that age isn't something you need to hide from. For us, life is just getting started!!
